Every parent wants the best for his child but at the same time every parent is confused too while making important decisions pertaining to the future of his child!! Choosing a good school affiliated to the right board is the biggest dilemma the parents are facing these days. CBSE, ICSE, State boards need no introduction but IB or International Baccalaureate has brought fresh ideas towards a child’s holistic growth.

What is the International Baccalaureate?

International Baccalaureate is an international education organisation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. IB aims at making your child an ‘inquisitive, knowledgeable and a caring citizen’ by providing a standardised educational model across the world. IB came to India in 1976 and since then many prominent schools in India are affiliated with this board

Internationally Recognized Standard

IB schools are recognized internationally and students passing out from this board get leverage while enrolling in foreign universities. It would be a good idea if you want to send your child abroad for higher studies because the curriculum by this board is designed such that it would also prepare him for international universities like Harvard and Cambridge.


The IB curriculum is divided into three programs-

  • IB – Primary Years Programme For students aged 3-12
  • IB – Middle Years Programme For students aged 11-16
  • IB – Diploma Programme For students aged 16-19

The curriculum is identical across all the IB schools, therefore, the transition from one school to another is not hard on the student. In an IB school children are exposed to a wide range of subjects to prepare for further education

Broad Exposure

IB schools offers a balanced education of international level where they also can get to work on their extra-curricular skills and participate in national level tournaments too like Delhi Olympic Games, Jaypee Open Tennis Tournament and Fox Golf Junior Tournament.

Excellent Facilities

IB schools follow global standards in providing facilities as well. Highly qualified teachers with state-of-the-art campus. Top IB schools also provide residential facilities.
